To say that the wedding was the best day of my life was an understatement. We woke up to a dreary, rainy, humid morning but by 1:00 the sun was out, it cooled down and it was the perfect October day. There wasn't a thing that went wrong and I wouldn't change anything. Chuck looked fantastic and it really touched me to see him as emotional as he was. The reception was a blast. The food was amazing and we spent the night dancing with all of our family and friends.

I actually got this idea from MommyLynda. Chuck set up an account for our guests to use on SnapFish and we had cards printed up for all of our guests in the hopes that they will post the pictures they take on our wedding day. I don't know if they actually will but I hope they do.

When I first started planning the wedding I had decided that I did not want a veil. It just wasn't me and I thought it was a waste of money since I would have taken it off once I got to the reception. Once I found my dress I thought a veil might be best with it since we are having a church wedding and my dress didn't seem "dressy" enough for a church wedding. Inspired by kohler's fantastic pictures I went with a cathedral length veil to add some drama at the church and our pictures. I love my veil and can't wait to get some amazing pics with it.

After deciding on my veil I thought I'd like to get something fun to put in my hair at the reception once I take the veil off. I ended up looking on Etsy and finding Feathers and Frills. I loved her work and contacted her about doing a piece for me. It hasn't been shipped yet but here are some pictures she has sent me so far.
